Thank you Wouter!
Delfi-C3 truly is and was an inspirational satellite. It broke new ground
from a CubeSat perspective and allowed many of us to share in the science
and amateur radio part. Congratulations to the team for a job well done! I
would greatly appreciate if you could list for us some of the published
papers and publicly available presentations to read up on the many
accomplishments. It also would make a for a great reference for any
upcoming CubeSat project.
73, Stefan VE4NSA
